STATEWIDE AND LOCAL MEMBERSHIP
MONTHLY LOCAL CHAPTER MEETINGS
WBON has monthly chapter meetings in South Burlington, Williston, and Rutland. Members serve as Chapter Coordinators and plan the speakers and topics for the month based on member suggestions. Members can attend chapter meetings free of charge and guests may attend up to 2 meetings at no charge. Meeting dates and topics are announced in the monthly e-Newsletter and posted on this website.
Our spring conference is a statewide day-long professional development event that focuses on a topic of interest to women business owners. The event typically includes a member expo and is held during the month of May.
The fall conference is a headline statewide event each year. It features well-known keynote speakers as well as working sessions and time for networking. The event may or may not include a member expo, based on the location.
